My Relationship With #11

Throughout my life, if it was possible to wear #11, I wore #11.

In 1984, a young George Bell hit 26 dingers for my Blue Jays. I was hooked. George Bell became my guy, and George Bell wore #11. The rest, is history.

Olli Jokinen has chosen #11 for his short stint with the Leafs. I just like seeing that number out there on the ice.

My oldest son has adopted the number has his go-to number for baseball and hockey. I never asked him to, but I'm glad he did.
